James Haspiel was a personal friend of Marilyn Monroe and he has kept an incredible collection of personal items that belonged to the Diva. He has also advised authors and journalists on the life of Marilyn and the real personality behind the iconic mask, as well as offering first hand information to several televised documentaries.From Library Journal:
In 1954, 16-year-old fan Haspiel received his boldly requested kiss on the cheek from Marilyn Monroe. This began a friendly association that was to last until Monroe's untimely death. Haspiel deftly recounts his experiences tracking and photographing "Mazzie" everywhere from glamorous movie events to quiet outings with friends. Through subsequent moments shared with her in cabs, crowds, lobbies, on street corners, and the like he reverently observes the real woman behind the headlines. This is not a biography, although it does contain knowledgeable data on Monroe's life and career. Rather, it is a sensitive reminiscence from an illuminating perspective. Diverse photographs, clippings, and memorabilia are of particular appeal. For circulating libraries.
